Using a visit to the Tate Modern and Freud's House in London as our starting point, we will embark on an exploration of the uncanny. A first stop will be a consideration of surrealism's attempt to capture the unconscious, the limitations of this project and an alternative understanding of surrealist art as an example of the uncanny, an idea that springs from the uncanny uncanniness of a seemingly mundane visit to the Freud museum. Freud's essay entitled The Uncanny will be our guide on this foray into the disorientation that lurks within the reassuringly known and homey.
As noted above I will be referring to Freud's 1919 essay "The Uncanny" translated by James Strachey. In addition, I hope to talk about the uncanny elements at work in James Joyce's short story The Dead.
